Queen of Cups Tarot Card Meanings – Reversed

The Queen of Cups reversed represents introspection gone too far. When one looks further and further within, eventually one can close down and lose touch even with that which they observe.queen of cups reversed

Rather than dealing with your emotions, you are instead turning towards the path of pure logic, trying to ‘reason’ with your emotions. Alternately, your emotions may be out of control. They are being too deeply invested in the situation you’re dealing with, and causing undue difficulty in working with it.

Queen of Cups, in the reversed position, stands for someone who is a dreamer and is not trustworthy. You are pretty fickle-minded and prone to change your views without any basis or good reason.

You love to let loose your imagination and scale great heights in your dream world. You may bring devastation to others as you run to fulfill some redundant fantasy of yours. Ethics and principles don’t hold any meaning to you.

You are a superficial person with very little honor. You also have a superiority complex. Under the influence of these vices, you are an immoral person who should be trusted at one’s own risk.

Past Events:

It’s been quite difficult to deal with the situation that’s been surrounding you. You’ve found that your emotions have been out of control, and that you’ve been raging at people rather than reasoning.

Instead of healing, you find that your words tend to cut right to the bone and cause harm. It’s been a hard road, and has set up the situation you’re now in.

Present Events:

Alright your majesty, you need to take a moment to actually deal with all those emotions you’ve been bottling up. The anger and hurt you feel are justified.

They must be handled tenderly and healed if you expect them to go away eventually. This tarot card being present speaks of your need to be deeper in touch with your emotions, while handling them responsibly.

Future Events:

Take care, the Queen is coming. She is in her wrath, and will take her petty vindictiveness out on those who come in reach. She will be unavoidably a part of the situation you find yourself in. Take care in dealing with her, or you’ll feel her wrath.
